SeaRose FPSO is a floating production, storage and offloading vessel located in the White Rose oil and gas field, approximately 350 kilometres (217 Nm) east-southeast off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada in the North Atlantic Ocean. The White Rose field is operated by Husky Energy, with a 72.5% interest, with Petro-Canada owning a 27.5% share.

SeaRose is approximately 50 km (31 mi) east of the successful Hibernia field and the more recent Terra Nova field. All three fields are in the Jeanne d'Arc Basin on the eastern edge of the famous Grand Banks fishing territory.

SeaRose made her way from the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Geoje South Korea to Marystown, Newfoundland, for final preparation, in April 2004; a 14,000 nmi (26,000 km; 16,000 mi) trip that took two months. In August 2005 she left Marystown for her work duty at Husky Energy's White Rose oil field.
